NetBackup has supported simple disk based data protection using disk Storage Units and VTLs for several releases but with the release of NetBackup 6.5 several new and enhanced disk-based features were introduced, including the following:

  • Intelligent disk management capabilities to enable more efficient use of server and storage resources.
  • Load balancing across multiple NetBackup Media Servers to improve overall backup performance.
  • Pre-allocation of disk space to prevent backup failure due to lack of disk space.
  • Deduplication features to eliminate redundant data from backup storage.
  • Integration with intelligent disk based appliances from leading vendors to allow the user to get optimal value from these solutions.
  • Support for ‘off host' duplication with VTLs to provide tracking within NetBackup for backup duplication carried out within the VTL.
